Apostilles are the international form of authentication, and they are used in the United States to authenticate documents that have been executed abroad. They are also used to authenticate signatures on documents which have not been executed abroad.
In Louisiana, apostilles are required for a number of purposes, such as:
  • To authenticate a document as an official record of a foreign government or public international organization
  • To authenticate a translation of a foreign language document
  • To authenticate the execution or validity of an instrument or contract that is intended to be filed or registered in another state (e.g., for filing in Louisiana)
Louisiana is the only state in America that does not accept apostilles from foreign countries.

This means that companies, organizations, and individuals in Louisiana are required to go through a lengthy process of getting their documents translated and certified with the Secretary of State.

This is a time-consuming process for companies who have to send documents to be certified by the Secretary of State every time they need them. This can also be expensive for organizations who have to pay for a translator every time they need their documents translated.

We have been providing the best apostille services for many years now and we have a lot of experience in doing so. We have a team of experts who are well-versed with all the regulations and rules that govern this process. Our team is well-trained, skilled and knowledgeable about all the paperwork required for this process.

Louisiana Apostille FAQ

What is an apostille?

An apostille is a specialized certificate that is issued by the Secretary of State. An apostille is placed on your original document to attest to its validity and authenticity so that it will be accepted by one of the other countries that are signatories to the Hague Apostille Convention.

How to apostille documents in Louisiana?

An apostille from the Louisiana Secretary of State is only valid for use in countries that have signed the Hague Convention. Instead of being apostilled, all documents issued for non-Hague Participating Countries will be certified.

Apostilles are optional within the United States or its possessions. As a result, the Secretary of State of Louisiana will not issue an apostille for use in American Samoa, Guam, the Northern Mariana Islands, or Puerto Rico. For each document, the Louisiana Secretary of State charges $20. Documents may contain multiple pages.

How long does it take to apostille documents in Louisiana?

It can sometimes take a lot of effort and time to obtain an apostille. It generally takes 3 business days, but it could take up to a few weeks in Louisiana. We suggest contacting us if you would like more details. We have processed thousands of documents over the past 20 years. Our expert team is skilled at accelerating and streamlining the process for you.

Which documents can I apostille in Louisiana?

In Louisiana, you can apostille any personal and corporate documents including a medical certificate, a divorce decree, a birth certificate, or hiring documents. You should know that documents signed by an out-of-state notary cannot receive an apostille. Moreover, university diplomas from out-of-state universities can only be apostille by the state in which the university is located.

Can I apostille a Louisiana birth certificate in another state?

No. A birth certificate apostille can only be processed through the state of the issue. So, if a child was born in Louisiana, then a corresponding birth certificate can only receive the Louisiana apostille.
